AAC Strategic Plan 2018

For 18 months our strategic planning committee worked diligently to plan our next steps. The resulting AAC Strategic Plan 2018 document can be read online.

The Strategic Planning Process was initiated in the spring of 2017. Agudas Achim was one of a cohort of synagogues involved in the USCJ’s Sulam for Strategic Planners program, which is part of their Thriving Congregations initiative. USCJ Transformation Specialist Aimee Close provided the framework and guidance as we went through the process.

Our strategic plan was designed to be both comprehensive and actionable, and includes input from as many members of the Agudas Achim community as possible. The process began with a 16-member steering commitee, then proceeded in widening circles reaching out in a variety of ways to anyone who wanted to be involved. The resulting discovery process yielding a plan based on the genuine concerns and constructive ideas of the congregation. The process was also intended to get people involved and enthusiastic about the strategic planning process to improve the likelihood that the recommendations in the plan would be
implemented.

The steering committee formed in March 2017 under co-chairs Rabbi Rein, Rachel Goldberg, and Jim Robbins. Many thanks to the members of the committee for their hard work and devotion to the future of our congregation: Ellen Bayer, Ann Bennett, Renee Berman, Stan Blacker, Doug Fagen, Joel Goldhammer, Meredith Ludwig, Barry Nove, Arnie Rosenblatt, Ilana Rothberg, Lynne Sandler, Melissa Siskind, and Nicole
Yakatan.
